In these recordings, which date only 2 days after the brutal attack by Metro police on the refugee's makeshift shelter, Becken, tells his stori(es) through his songs. After we had made the recordings, Becken listened back quietly to the entire footage. In another set of recordings we had made in October, he tells his story in many questions (http://www.archive.org/details/DurbanSings_250).
